How can a property owner determine if the property is in a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA)?
FEMA publishes Flood Insurance Rate Maps, which show the flood hazard areas in communities. The Flood Insurance Rate Map for the county is on file with the Department of the Environment (DoE) and many insurance companies. In addition to the Flood Insurance Rate Map, DoE has done a number of watershed studies covering most of Prince George's County. The Flood Insurance Rate Map and local floodplain maps can be viewed by the public at the DoE offices in Largo. In addition, local residents and business owners can call the Department of the Environment at (301) 883-5810 to request floodplain information about their particular property.
